Growing Young is a CBFNC initiative in partnership with Fuller Youth Institute (FYI). Based on the research findings of FYI and its subsequent book, CBFNC is committed to helping churches better welcome and engage young people ages 15-29 and beyond.
Churches are both shrinking and aging as more young people disengage. Based on groundbreaking research with over 250 of the nation’s leading congregations, Growing Young provides a strategy any church can use to involve and retain young people. It profiles innovative churches engaging 15- to 29-year-olds that are growing–spiritually, emotionally, missionally, and numerically. Packed with ideas, Growing Young shows ministry leaders how to position their churches to reach younger generations in a way that breathes life into the whole church.
